To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions? Do I need therapy? Are my problems and experiences important enough for therapy? What is the therapist going to think about me? Initiating therapy can be a difficult process. Understanding this, I strive to make everyone feel safe and comfortable in my office setting. I have worked hard to ensure that individuals feel at ease when exploring their past and present experiences.

We all need help sometimes and seeing a therapist takes a lot of strength and courage. People may decide to see a therapist if they are experiencing any of the following emotions or feelings to the extent that they interfere with life, therapy may help reduce their effects. It’s especially important to consider getting help if you feel controlled by symptoms or if they could cause harm to yourself or others. You feel overwhelmed, fatigued, anxious, sad, irritable, not sleeping well, experiencing intrusive thoughts, and isolating from family and friends. You can start working through your struggles with someone that cares about you.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Des Moines, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
